CHEMICAL ENGINEERING FRANCIS A. PELCZAR, Ph.D., Program Director The Department of Chemistry offers a cooperative program in Chemical Engineering with the University of Pittsburgh. This program requires five years of study for completion: three years at Gannon University followed by two years of study at the University of Pittsburgh. Upon completion, the student is awarded two degrees, a B.S. in Chemistry from Gannon University and a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the cooperating university. During the period spent at Gannon, the student will take specified courses in Chemistry, Mathematics and Liberal Studies Core and will have the advantage of beginning college level work in small classes where there is a strong commitment to effective teaching. Upon transfer to the cooperating university a wide range of professional specializations are available, including opportunity to participate in a cooperative/work study program. Eligibility requirements for acceptance at the cooperating universities are no grades below "C", and a grade point average not less than 3.0. Further information and career counseling is available from the Director.
